Thanks. Yep. I did all of the positioning/routing.
It all got welded in waves because once one part got welded up, I needed to check for distortion. The crossover was just left tacked when the manifolds were welded up as was the DP, wastegate etc. All of that needed to be tweaked a little. Clamps could have pulled it togethor for the most part but there would be stress cracks down the line.

I didn't get a good shot of it but the turbo is braced at the flange to the trans case.

A few things are getting dropped off at the welder this week.
-1 IC pipe to weld on a blow off valve flange
-The aluminum water lines to have a lip welded on either end (don't want them popping off)
-The DP to weld up the re-circ wastegate pipe

I won't be working on the car agian till Memorial Day weekend but hopefully I'll finish it up then.

I have a couple things I would like to get finished on my car once this things done.
